BostonHerald.com - Local Politics: Fare game unfolds: Foes say Healey has flip-flop down to T
Why are campaigns so negative and sarcastic? How could anyone be convinced to vote for Patrick, Mihos, Reilly, or Gabrielli as a result of these petty quotes?
...Opponents called it an election-year switch.
"They change their minds with the wind over there, no matter what it is," Mihos said.
Richard Chacon, spokesman for Patrick, the first candidate to publicly oppose the hike, said "We're glad that Kerry Healey has finally joined us in opposing this unfair hike," but he added: "What's next? When she finds out that Mr. Patrick favors raising the minimum wage will she shift on that, too?"
Gabrieli spokesman Joe Ganley said, "Kerry Healey is just like the New England weather. If you don't like her position on an issue, just wait a day, it will change."
Reilly spokesman Corey Welford said, "To think that we should be raising fares at all on people at a time that they are being squeezed from all sides, shows once again how out of touch Kerry Healey really is."
